In the United Kingdom Building Design magazine has since 2006 been awarding the Carbuncle Cup annual prize to the ugliest building built in the country over the past 12 months. In 2010, the dubious honor of winning this competition went to the Strata Tower in south London.

Sometimes even world-renowned architects design buildings which can hardly be described as the most pleasing to the eye. They may be original, high-tech and built to the highest standards, but from an architectural point of view, alas, they fail to make the grade. A photo gallery of the most unattractive contemporary buildings has been put together by RIA Novosti Realty.
